Pros

FLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY Work on what you want Work when you want Work where you want Very flexible schedule. I generally come in to the office at 1pm. Sometimes I leave at 10pm, sometimes I leave at 2am, sometimes [Fridays] I leave at 7pm. Sometimes I work from home. Sometimes I work from Hawaii. Excellent opportunity. I was promoted within 7 months of starting. Super flexible management. I told my manager I wanted to work on a new [my own] project; he immediately said go for it. I've been working on it full time for 1.5 months. I told my manager I wanted to move to Seattle. He said okay, look for a team up there. Awesome food. Awesome amenities. Smart people. Learn from the best.

Cons

Not as much opportunity for [company] growth as what you'd get at a startup.

    Pros

    Fast moving company. Good compensation. One of the most recognizable companies in the world.

    Cons

    Family work life balance can be a little tough for people with actual family. Open table work environment can be counter-productive for engineers. Too much noise and visual distraction is quite negative for a positive work flow. Seems to suit new college graduates since it looks more like college computer lab and a mature/productive workplace design.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a work place with more privacy.
